I couldn’t find an old thread, but I am sure there are a few.
All of my relationships have had the same old same old same old communication issues- obviously, I am the common factor.
It is currently taking its toll on our family - my gf/almost fiance and I are having constant and consistent stress pretty much 4 out of every 7 days.
We have been together for about 40 weekends, and I think 3 of them have not involved fighting.
Not physical stuff, but just constant bickering or worse.
She wants to ‘air her feelings’- and that means telling me how f’d up I am- I have friends and others to air those types of feelings to, but for whatever reason, she does not use hers for that purpose- so when she wants to talk about me, she does it TO me, which I think is juvenile and is pretty much just bashing me.
We are in therapy, and it always makes things better for a few days.
I don’t expect the problem to go away, I am just looking for some long relationship coping stratagies.
